Santa Cruz Orthodontist, Dr. Hesham Amer
I have worked as an orthodontist for over a decade and my experience in the field definitely gives me the edge and advantage in meeting the specific needs of the people. The length of time that I have spent in the practice has helped me to gain so much, including friendships, because patients who are under my care are precious to me.
It has always been my personal belief to make patients feel at home and at ease when they come to me for treatment. I have been doing this for more than 10 years and there is no other work that I enjoy doing. I work hard to give my patients a certain level of care and attention because I know that it is what they deserve.
Apart from my practice, I am an Assistant Professor at the University of the Pacific and I run a study club that is focused on the instruction of Invisible Braces. Teaching helps me to keep up with the latest technology in orthodontic equipment and treatment. At the same time, it gives me the chance to maintain my knowledge and training in the field.
